Read All About It!(Bet Sparky does the crossword puzzle in ink)
Guys, this long(ish) post from Michael Hobbes is required reading.
The Methods of Moral Panic Journalism
Scare stories on “left-wing illiberalism” display a familiar pattern.
You’re right. It’s a great piece and a must-read. Thx, 10gr.

I might have recommended that last week, BDR.
Sadly, Hobbes has hung up his mic on “You’re Wrong About.”
LOL, I expect that’s how I ended up reading it.
I am constantly reminded of the ur-computer game “Colossal Cave” and it’s general applicability to life.

(Geek joke: back in the day we had 4 different *nix systems lined up on a long table in our office: two different SGI boxes for molecular modelling, a DEC Alpha that was our domain controller/email system, and an HP/Apollo with that horrible Frankenunix SysV/BSD OS, and a sign printed (in big ascii-art characters across a nunch of sheets of 80-col fanfold, natch)
